  • Q. How is the performance of honda xblade?

    The power delivery is good in the low range and lets you get off the line easily. It feels strongest between 4500-6000rpm where the bike feels peppy, even more so than the Hornet. As a result, at 5.3 seconds, the bike is only 0.22 seconds slower to 60kmph than the Hornet. But more impressively, at 6.42 seconds, it is 0.26 seconds faster than the Hornet in getting from 30 to 70kmph in 3rd gear. This makes the X-Blade an able city dweller. Combine this with a slick-shifting 5-speed gearbox and it's a pleasant riding experience in the urban environment. It feels smooth and runs almost free of vibrations till the 9000rpm mark. After the 9000rpm mark, there are some vibrations on the mirrors and the pegs, but most riders are rarely going to find themselves in this zone. On the highways, it’s most comfortable doing 85kmph at 5500 rpm. Like the performance, even the handling is biased towards city use. And in that aspect, the X-Blade shines. At 140 kg, the X-Blade is the heaviest in the Honda 160 family, but doesn't feel like it. That's down to the lightness of the front end. It's easy to manoeuvre the bike in between traffic, and taking u-turns is also quite simple. But this lightness becomes a bit of an issue on winding roads. The bike is a bit too eager to tip into corners and doesn't provide confidence when leaned over. The stopping power on the bike, though, feels lacking. The brakes have decent bite but desperately lack feel. The front disc still managed to convey some kind of feedback but the rear drum just seems wooden and happily locks up under hard braking. This wouldn’t have been a huge concern if Honda had offered ABS, or even CBS, but neither of them are available on the bike, even as an option.

  • Q. What is the mileage and how is the braking performance. Did anybody covered over 50000km ,after 50k km is there any problems like vacuum pump failure or any missing in cold or rainy climate - XBlade?

    It is expected to return the fuel efficiency around 55-60 kmpl (approx). Talking about its stopping power, it feels lacking of ABS. The brakes have decent bite but desperately lack feel. The front disc still managed to convey some kind of feedback but the rear drum just seems wooden and happily locks up under hard braking. This wouldn’t have been a huge concern if Honda had offered ABS, or even CBS, but neither of them are available on the bike, even as an option.

  • Q. Which is best for ride, Honda Xblade ABS or Yamaha FZ S FI V 3.0?
    Gokul

    FZS V3 is hybrid fuel injection model.It use carburator as well as fuel injection system so it is power plus commutor combination.It is good to use on smooth highways just like city environment.X-blade have carburator system so it is always an excitement with throttle wherever you go.It do not lose momentum even on high gear and low speed because of carburator.FZS need to shift down on sudden speed drop so it lacks the excitement as it take a little time to recover the momentum on same gear.So, I prefer X-blade if you dont think much on pocket,and FZS if you have fix route of travelling comfirtable on pocket too.

  • Q. How is xblade for longer journeys?
    Zigwheels
    Zigwheels | 1 year ago

    The Honda X-Blade shares its motor with the Hornet 160R. But the 162.71cc, air-cooled, single-cylinder engine puts out 14PS of power at 8500rpm and 13.9Nm of torque at 6000rpm, which is 1.5PS and 1Nm less than the Hornet 160R. The motor is mated to a 5-speed gearbox. The seat is wide, with the cushioning on the softer side. The handlebars are also well set for reach and let you get into a comfortable riding position, though its slightly lower set nature might not appeal to everyone. Even the footpegs are not set too far back, and make for a less aggressive posture. That said, it is not as laid back as the Unicorn, and the same can also be said about the way it rides. The power delivery is good in the low range and lets you get off the line easily. On the highways, it’s most comfortable doing 85kmph at 5500 rpm.

    Rakesh | 4 months ago

    Forget about glamour. if you ride through congested areas but also want good mileage then go for shine. but if you are riding approx 100kms a day and ride through big streets or highways. then go for xblade, bcause it gives you the balance you need while riding and comfort as well.
